A variation on, "Go out and break me off a switch from that tree so I can beat you with it."
Five Republican leaders plan to seek reimbursements for attending the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, conference last week.
The authorization allows them to receive $104 per day for travel expenses as well as reimbursement for registration fees, which cost up to $750 for legislators at the ALEC event. It is considered professional development.
If you consider abdicating your responsibility to write your own bills, and substituting industry-crafted nonsense in their place "professional development," just how low would they have to go to be considered unethical? Steal candy from a baby, rob a Salvation Army donation can, and then run over a nun in a crosswalk while making their getaway?
